Four Fantastic Julia Child Recipes

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

On what would have been her 105th birthday, we have selected four fantastic recipes from Julia Child herself that definitely warrant space in your recipe box. Take a look below.

Potato & Leek Soup

Enamel Recipe Box

The smooth and creamy consistency of this soup would make a great first course during a dinner party, or a light lunch at home.

Ratatouille

Julia Child’s ratatouille is hearty and delicious, and tastes great freshly made or the day after!

Pâte a Brioche

Light and sweet and rich; you won’t want to ever be without this Brioche recipe.

Apricot Sherbet

Since it is summer after all, we had to include a cool and tasty dessert. While this sherbert recipe does have a long prep time (it needs to be almost frozen, after all), it is so worth it.

Parmesan Crostini with Garlic Butter Recipe

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

French BaguettesLooking for an easy appetizer recipe for a mid-afternoon soiree, or want to include a complementary appetizer at your wine and cheese party? Look no further than the Parmesan Crostini!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 French baguettes,
    cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1½ cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh garlic, minced
  • 1½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F and set out two large baking sheets.
  2. Arrange baguette slices onto the baking sheets.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and garlic. Drizzle half of the mixture over the bread slices.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Turn the slices over and drizzle remaining mixture over the slices. Return to the oven and continue baking for 50 minutes – 1 hour (or until golden brown), flipping the slices over every 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle the top of each slice with grated Parmesan cheese. Serves about 14 people.
